The Triwizard tournament was a 700 year old competition established between three schools; Hogwarts, Durmstrang and Beauxbatons. One champion from each school was selected to compete in three magical tasks, with their name magically being selected from the Goblet of Fire. The winner of the competition claimed the Triwizard Cup along with a monetary prize. After a hiatus of a number of years, due to a high fatality rate, the Triwizard Tournament returned to Hogwarts during Harry's fourth year at school.
